  1. I have a nice all black Goulet #6 nib that I like a lot. For the past few years it's been living in a Jinhao 159. The jinhao 159 wasn't that lovely to begin with, and, as expected, the "enamel" is starting to chip off, so I think it's time to find a new home for my nib. I'd like something that's a bit of an upgrade from the 159, nice looking, but not too expensive. Not a Duragraph, because I already did this project with a Goulet 1.1mm stub and a Duragraph. While that turned out just fine, I don't want another one. I was thinking the Jinhao 100 might be nice - a classic Duofold look.
  2. Hello, I have a question that I do not think has been answered yet (at least not that my extensive googling and patrolling of this forum can find). I have a Jinhao 159 that I'm slowly turning into a flex-nibbed pen. I bought a Noodler's #6 flex nib a while ago, and while it DOES fit, albeit with some force, and it DOES write, the feed has some issues keeping up with the demands of the nib. A possibility to fix this is jerry-rigging a Noodler's ebonite feed into my 159. The only thing I've seen about this was a random post a while ago on some forum I'm not familiar with stating that he 'was g

    Jinhao 159 Stub Nib

    Hi guys! Hope y'all doing well. It was that day again where this 15 year-old teen felt bored writing with a characterless Jinhao 159. So I just pulled out my pen customizing stuff and ground a stub. It turned out beautiful. It is smooth and wet and has enough line variation that makes the nib interesting to write with but still be usable for daily writing. Here are some pictures... I would love to learn more of this art. I also recently did my first paid stub for a friend and that also turned out quite good. P.S. Excuse the crappy pics. I promise to do a full review of the pen with
  4. Okay, so I just bought a Jinhao 159 that came with a Goulet # 6 two-tone "M" nib and my plans are to use it for personal correspondence. Choices: Edelstein AVENTURINE Diamine POPPY RED Montblanc TOFFEE BROWN Waterman INTENSE BLACK I was thinking about Aventurine but a LONG letter in green sounds a bit much. OTOH, green is my favorite color and I like this one......but I STILL come back to it being overkill. Poppy Red is interesting because it is not that clownish or teacher's red, but it's STILL red. Hmmmmmmm MB toffee puts down a nice wet line and I like the color. The first
  5. I just saw that the Jinhao 159 is available on eBay in a stainless steel finish. Looks attractive.
  6. The Tall Dark Stranger turned his horse toward Texas Street as he rode into Abilene Town. He'd signed on as a drover with the cowboys bringing their cattle up to the rail head in Abilene Town, Kansas - The Heartland. It was a hard dusty ride up the famous Chisholm Trail from Wichita. Yet he showed none of the bone deep tiredness of the others. The Stranger didn't speak much on the ride. Most of the men stayed away from him. He was just that big and scary. A few tried to get him to talk and see where he had come from, but they were met with a steely stare, a far off look that would send chills
  7. So, recently I was cycling through pens and gave my 159 another go. It worked for me for the past week but today the ink spilled out of the top of the cap and into my leather case. Luckily, I cleaned it up and wrapped it in a cloth for the rest of the day I was at uni. Anyways, my solution was to put silicon grease on the top threads in the case that it would happen again. Then I had a thought. What if I left the clip off? I present to you: Quite beautiful IMHO. Sailor 1911L for comparison. NB: just remember to put silicon grease on the top as although it is tight, I wouldn

    Assistance Sought - Clip

    The clip of my Jinhao 159 is a lot more tight-sprung than I'd ideally like it to be. To slip it into my shirt pocket takes a wee effort and while that's still manageable, to take it out therefrom seemingly threatens to rip a tear in the pocket. Any ideas on how to safely loosen the clip without endangering the pen in any way or making it too loose to be of further use? Thanks in advance PS: The top bit of the cap cannot be unscrewed and the clip detached from the pen, in case you wondered...
